Manila, Philippines – Stephen Curry embarked on his second annual summer tour with Under Armour which began September 2.

UNDER ARMOUR INNOVATION IS HEADED TO RIO ON THE FEET OF MICHAEL PHELPS

UA ARCHITECH 3D PRINTED PERFORMANCE TRAINER & UA SLINGSHOT RUNNING FOOTWEAR TO PROVIDE PERSONAL MOTIVATION FOR ELITE SWIMMER

Under Armour, the global leader in innovative performance footwear, apparel and equipment has taken footwear innovation to the next level. In March, the Brand introduced its first-ever 3D printed performance trainer, the UA  . The UA Architech is a 360-degree performance training shoe that features a functional 3D printed midsole and 3D ClutchFit auxetic upper design that creates a “super-hybrid” trainer. This performance trainer provides athletes with the ultimate stability and cushioning to take on the most intense workouts, and it’s travelling all the way to Rio on the feet of elite swimmer, Michael Phelps. 

In addition to the state-of-the-art technology and custom color design, Michael’s footwear features a personal touch to provide an additional source of motivation as he heads into competition. His 3-month old son, Boomer’s footprint is printed on the insole of the shoe as a personal reminder that Boomer is with him every step and stroke of the way.

The innovative 3D printed midsole of the UA Architech was combined with a flow-molded 3D ClutchFit auxetic upper to provide athletes with a shoe that not only gives a locked-in, supportive feel, but also flexes and moves with the foot to provide a zero distractions experience. Add in the Brand’s unparalleled Charged Cushioning underfoot for responsiveness and comfort, and a thin rubber outsole for traction and you have Under Armour’s most elite performance trainer.

 A new color of the UA Architech will be available as a limited edition offering to consumers this August on UA.com. The shoe, which retails for $299.99, was the first 3D printed performance trainer available to consumers. The first color was available in March and sold out in under 20 minutes.

 Under Armour also geared Michael up with a custom pair of the UA Speedform Slingshot Running shoes in a limited edition red, white and blue colorway that also feature Boomer’s footprint. This innovative running shoe delivers zero distractions with a seamless, zonal compression, 3D knit upper and Under Armour Charged Cushioning. The limited edition color way is available on UA.com.

Under Armour celebrates Stephen Curry’s second consecutive Kia NBA MVP Award with limited edition back-to-back shoe pack

Shoot like Curry in the new Curry MVP Back 2 Back Pack

 SocMed basketball shootout

Manila, August 2016 – U.S. high performance sports apparel label Under Armour celebrates U.S. National Basketball Association (NBA) superstar Stephen Curry’s outstanding season performance and second consecutive Kia NBA MVP Award with the Curry MVP Back 2 Back Pack, containing a re-release of the Curry One MVP and a new Curry Two MVP colourway.

 Curry’s impression on the sport of basketball is a lesson in the power of perseverance, through sheer will and hard work. In the 2014-2015 season, Curry impressed all by being the first player ever to hit 300 three-pointers in a season. He claimed the 2014-15 Kia NBA MVP Award for his performance and earned his first Larry O’Brien World Championship trophy. Following that, in the 2015-2016 season, he helped to lead the Golden State Warriors to the single-season record for wins, shattered his own three-point record of 400 three-pointers in a season, led the league in scoring and joined the prestigious 50-40-90 shooting club.  

 For his outstanding achievements, Curry earned the 2015-16 Kia NBA Most Valuable Player Award. He is the 11th player (third point guard) in league history to earn the award in back-to-back seasons.

 “Stephen Curry’s impact on the game of basketball is immeasurable,” said Kip Fulks, Chief Marketing Officer, Under Armour. “His game and will to dominate is unlike anything we’ve ever seen in the NBA, and his cultural reach off the court is equally transcendent. At Under Armour we are thrilled and humbled to be alongside Stephen on this journey, and look forward to his continued perseverance in making himself a better athlete every single day.”

 Commemorating the signature footwear Curry wore in the back-to-back MVP seasons, the Under Armour Curry MVP Back 2 Back Packhas sleek gold colours and design elements, reinforced by Under Armour’s innovative technology. It echoes the relentless strength and tenacity demonstrated by Curry, whose ability to hit shots off the dribble, in traffic and from incredible distance took the world by storm.

 The Under Armour Curry MVP Back 2 Back Pack will be available exclusively on www.underarmour.com.ph and Titan retail stores.

Under Armour expands reach in PH by opening new brand house at TriNoma

Under Armour finds a new home at Ayala Malls’ shopping center in Quezon City.

The TriNoma brand house of the world’s innovative sports apparel is set to be the fifth Under Armour branch in the Philippines

MANILA, PHILIPPINES  Regarded as the most innovative sports and fitness clothing line in the world today, Under Armour is extending its reach in the Philippines as it launches a new brand house in Metro Manila.

 Under Armour will formally open a branch at Level 3 of the TriNoma Mall in Quezon City on Friday, August 12.

 The grand opening event will be held on Saturday, August 13, with Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) superstars Asi Taulava and Jervy Cruz serving as special guests

 Taulava, a Filipino-Tongan cager who has been strutting his wares on the PBA court for 16 years in five different teams, copped the league’s Most Valuable Player trophy in 2003 and led the Talk ‘N Text Tropang Texters to the All-Filipino Conference title in the same year.

 Known by his moniker “The Rock” due to his prowess in the shaded lane, Taulava likewise represented flag and country in international competitions as he suited up for the Philippine national team on several occasions. And now, he is currently the starting center of the NLEX Road Warriors.

 Meanwhile, Cruz rose to prominence in the collegiate ranks when he steered the University of Santo Tomas Growling Tigers to the UAAP Promised Land in 2006.

 Proving that skill could topple height, Cruz managed to elevate his on-court stature as a legitimate inside threat in his first few years in the PBA , now part of the most prominent PBA team in the country- Ginebra.

 Taulava and Cruz will be offering a special treat to Under Armour aficionados as both men are slated to conduct a basketball clinic on August 13, 4:00pm, at the TriNoma activity center.

 Aside from Taulava and Cruz’s free basketball workshop, Under Armour fans will also be given a chance to unleash their inner Stephen Curry with the UA Basketball Shootout Challenge, where qualified contestants will go head-to-head by showcasing their three-point shooting skills.

 In order to join the basketball clinic and UA Basketball Shootout Challenge, a single receipt purchase of at least P2,000 from August 12 to August 13 at the Under Armour TriNoma brand house will earn an exclusive pass to the festivities and a chance to take home awesome prizes.

 Under Armour’s TriNoma brand house, the sporting apparel’s fifth branch in the Philippines and fourth in Metro Manila, is expected to have the top-of-the-line Curry 2.5 and the highly-acclaimed UA Charged Bandit 2 on its shelves.

 Designed for NBA’s most prolific point guard, Curry 2.5 is molded in synthetic upper that is wrapped closely around the foot for a lightweight and precise fit.

 In addition, Curry 2.5 has an external PU shell that provides durable support and structure as well as an external shank and heel counter that delivers locked-in stability through heel, arch and forefoot to maintain balance.
